Hotel owners in Los Angeles are pushing a plan to add a new fee to hotel bills that would generate more money to promote the city as a worldwide tourist destination. While the city already spends $11.4 million a year to attract tourists, proponents of the new fee say Los Angeles spends far less to promote itself than other top tourism towns such as Las Vegas, San Diego and Orlando, Fla. "We've been noncompetitive in the convention business and tourism business for years," said Bruce Gorelick, manager of the Renaissance Hollywood Hotel & Spa and a supporter of the plan.

After a marathon meeting, Hollywood's two main actors unions took a historic step toward creating the largest and potentially most powerful entertainment union in the industry. Leaders of the 125,000-member Screen Actors Guild and the American Federation of Television and Radio Artists, which has about 70,000 members, reached a merger agreement Monday after nine days of intensive talks at the Renaissance Hollywood Hotel. If approved as expected by the union boards and memberships, the merger would end a decades-long competition between the two groups to organize actors.

Glamour was always close by -- but just out of reach.

Cinecon, the annual celebration of film rarities, started inauspiciously in 1965 in Indiana, Pa. -- the hometown of Jimmy Stewart -- as a way for 8 millimeter film collectors to congregate and show their films. Now in its 43rd year, the gathering, which kicks off Thursday, has morphed into a five-day festival, memorabilia show and book fair in Hollywood, and virtually all the films screened are 35 mm.
